So I have this TI-83 I've had since 7th grade. Well, I recently put new batteries in it. Ever since the screen has been too dark for me to be able to use it. I've long ago lost the manual. How do I lighten the screen?

I think it's 2nd + Up/Down Arrow but it doesn't seem to work.

Any ideas?

Not gonna happen guys. I'm 6 weeks from being down with my engineering degree and I am not going to buy a new calculator for that.

LoL, but still don't know grammer.

It's the green diamond and +/-.  You have to hit the diamond each time.

TI may have invented the hand held calculator.  But Hewlett-Packard perfected it.  The HP-41CX and HP-42s.  Perfection.
